Wolfpack Volleyball Team Ready For Season To Begin

August 29, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

For the girls on the Elgin Public-Pope John volleyball team, the season starts Thursday. When it will end is entirely up to them.
The Wolfpack volleyball team was hit hard by graduation, losing three starters on a team which finished 11-17. Returning starters are Chelsi Mescher (outside hitter/setter), middle hitter Marin Heithoff and middle blocker Stephanie Bode. Also back is letterwinner Courtney Schumacher who was a defensive specialist last year.
Coach Tina Thiele-Blecher, entering her third season at the helm of the Wolfpack, said last week there is plenty of work to be done and the girls have practiced well heading into the season opener Thursday night at Stuart.

Wolfpack Crush Cardinals 36 to 0 in Opener

August 29, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

RANDOLPH — On a night when the weather didn’t know what to do, the Elgin Public-Pope John Wolfpack wasted little time in establishing once again its’ dominance on the gridiron, defeating Randolph 36 to 0.
The sun tried to shine, the clouds tried to produce rain, but to no avail on this Friday night, the opening night of the football season. The Wolfpack, on the other hand, knew exactly what they wanted to do and did it despite some first-game jitters for a number of new starters.
On their first possession of the game the Wolfpack lit up the scoreboard when I-back Austin Heying took a pitch from quarterback Ross Schindler and went 39 yards. Most of that run had the Cardinals eyeing his backside as Heying ran away from the Cardinals’ tacklers with surprising ease.
Going into the season, the offense looked to be in good shape. But the Wolfpack defense had some question marks. How would they handle a bigger Cardinals’ offensive line? The answer, not a problem. Randolph showed little in the way of a running game, despite a significant size advantage up front. The Wolfpack held the Cardinals to a three-and-out on their first possession.

Poll: Majority Want Pipeline Away From Sandhills, Aquifer

August 29, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

A majority of rural Nebraskans support construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline but want it built on a route that avoids the Sandhills and the Ogallala aquifer, according to the Nebraska Rural Poll.
The 17th annual University of Nebraska-Lincoln poll was sent to 6,350 households in Nebraska’s 84 nonmetropolitan counties in March and April. Results are based on 2,323 responses.
The poll included several questions related to recycling, land and natural resource priorities and the controversial Keystone pipeline, slated to be built to transport crude oil from Canada to Texas refineries.
Only 13 percent of respondents said they thought the pipeline should not be built because the environmental risks outweigh the economic benefits. Sixty-one percent disagreed with that position. Sixty-five percent, however, agreed the pipeline should be built along an alternative route that avoids the environmentally sensitive Sandhills and Ogallala aquifer; 15 percent disagreed. The currently planned route does avoid the Sandhills but it would go through some still-sensitive terrain and over eastern reaches of the Ogallala.
